Sunday marked Juneteenth, but today we observe the holiday also known as Freedom Day.

As you’ve seen from previous posts, I like to celebrate every occasion with food. What better way to support a local Black-Owned Business than by dining at one? Depending on how far you’re looking to travel for food, you can always check out this great website that lists Black-Owned Businesses by state (although it hasn’t been updated since September 2021) or EatOkra.com.

Specific to the Northern Virginia area, here are some of my favorites:

  • Pie Gourmet, Vienna
  • Blacknerd Coffee
  • Uncle Fred’s BBQ Smoke Shack, Reston
  • McLean Pizza & Subs, McLean
  • Makers Union, Reston
  • Also check out the local farmers markets — you’ll often find smaller shops there to support
